It’s 2014

January 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

Happy new year! It’s 2014 now.

2013 has been quite intense for me but overall I did enjoy it.
Normally people state their new year’s resolutions such as things they want to stop doing (i.e. no smoking etc) but I have thought it’s a bit too boring and negative so….

Things I want to do in 2014.

1) Reading more books of broader genre.

2) More piercings preferably nose, tragus and belly button.

3) Play more music (guitar and piano).

Hope it’s going to be a good year for everyone !

Ok, Zara has been my favourite for years and years. Here are some stuff I particularly picked from Zara FW13.

First of all, I’ve been looking into boots for this winter. LOVE those Zara’s boots.
The long sleeve black jumper thing strikes me so bad. I love the sheer texture yet it has got something underneath to cover yourself! Total awesomeness!
The vertical striped jumper is also unique. I do wear stripes – but not vertical stripes.
Finally, the coat! It must be so perfect for bloody cold British weather. It looks warm, chunky, goes well with any clothes. Just PERFECT.

Brick Lane, London

Brick Lane in London is my favourite spot – although I’m currently based in Brighton, I often visit Brick Lane to go shopping (mostly for vintage clothes) !
Brick Lane is also very well known for its graffiti.

YUMMY!

Not to mention, I love (window)shopping vintage shops.
Blitz is a place I always check out every time I’m in Brick Lane!
Its blog is very inspiring too.

Brighton and Brick Lane are quite similar in a way that they are relaxed, casual and adored by vintage lovers!

French lit.

First of all, I must say I haven’t studied a single French literature in depth in my life, but I somehow have got into French literature. Probably, it’s because of the theme, tone ant atmosphere that are often dark, absurd… Obviously, I’m aware that not all of the French literature are like that, but the ones I like are quite dark and the theme is pretty deep.

My favourite author is Albert Camus. “The Stranger” is one of my favourite books ever.

The other day, I’ve discovered the poetry that is in a way romantic (very typical stereotype of France) yet quite dark.
Paul Eluard is actually one of my favourite poet. I do read poetry in my first language, Japanese, never actually enjoyed reading any in other languages since the translation can be weiredly phrased, but I found a good website for reading French poetry in Japanese so I’m quite happy about it.

Le front aux vitres : Paul Eluard

  Le front aux vitres comme font les veilleurs de chagrin
  Ciel dont j’ai depasse la nuit
  Plaines toutes petites dans mes mains ouvertes
  Dans leur double horizon inerte indifferent
  Le front aux vitres comme font les veilleurs de chagrin
  Je te cherche par dela l’attente
  Par dela moi meme
  Et je ne sais plus tant je t’aime
  Lequel de nous deux est absent.

Pancake day

February 12, 2013 § Leave a comment

It’s Pancake day today also known as Shrove Tuesday. It sounds unfamiliar to a Japanese person since I’m not Christian (although I attended a Catholic school). To expain briefly, today is the first day of Lent.

Interestingly, I met up with my Japanese friends lastnight to cook and eat Okonomiyaki together. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese dish, which is a savory pancake that contains some shredded cabage, sometimes meat and seafood and lots of things.

It always makes me doubt to cook proper Japanese food in England due to the lack of ingredients but it turned out to be a very delicious Okonomiyaki so we were all happy.
